Man United reach last 16 after 2-1 home win over CSKA

Qualified as group leaders: Manchester United, PSG, Roma, Barcelona, Liverpool, Manchester City, Besiktas, Tottenham.

Group E rivals Sevilla also progressed after drawing 1-1 away to Maribor, where Marcos Tavares' header was cancelled out by Sevilla's Ganso. Striker Sergio Aguero scored a consolation for the Citizens in stoppage-time. They were very solid in the first half without being spectacular.

Tournament favourites Paris Saint-Germain are showing signs of fallibility, after the French outfit suffered their second loss in just four days as they were beaten 3-1 at Bayern Munich. Napoli took an early lead through Piotr Zielinski, but the game went downhill for the visitors from there. However, the Premier League leaders suffered a 2-1 defeat against Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday night to ruin their ideal record. Nicolai Jorgensen equalised before Tonny Vilhena saw red for the Dutch side. Powered by a front three of Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe, PSG had set a group-stage record of 24 goals before kick-off at the Allianz Arena, but were comfortably seen off by the five-time champions despite holding on to seal top spot in Group B.

Porto secured the win they needed to book the second qualifying spot in Group G by beating Monaco 5-2. Borja Mayoral, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lucas Vasquez were on target for the European champions, while a brace from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was not enough to earn BVB anything from their trip to the Spanish capital. Borussia Dortmund head to play Real on Wednesday, with Christian Pulisic and Co. hoping to seal the UEFA Europa League Round of 32 spot ahead of APOEL.

One of the advantages of winning your Champions League group is that this guarantees that a team will not have to play one of the other seven sides who topped their group too.
